Kurt Angle Challenges Steve Austin & HBK In Twitter Meltdown

Kurt AngleKurt Angle continues to be the gift that keeps on giving to pro wrestling bloggers. The TNA star had a recent meltdown on Twitter in which he challenged two WWE Hall of Fame stars and went on a tirade against the WWE. Yep, he’s at it again.

Let me say that I am a huge Kurt Angle fan. He is one of the few guys that I will stop and watch when I flip on Impact Wrestling. In the WWE, he probably entertained me more on a weekly basis with his character and wrestling than anyone else. But with that said, the guy really needs to stay off Twitter.

Angle posted a bunch of tweets for some unknown reason in which he went off on Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, and Jim Ross. The former Olympiad also pontificated about how the WWE would love to have him. Unfortunately you cannot go to Kurt’s Twitter feed and read these as he has deleted them. Fortunately several bloggers, including those at WrestlingInc.com were kind enough to capture them.

@steveaustinBSR @ShawnMichaels But Could Either of U take Me as a Shoot? Be Honest! I Respect You Both!”
@steveaustinBSR @ShawnMichaels by the way! I Love Austin and Michaels. Just Joking. U guys are legends!
I Became a top star in 1 year, but it took Shawn and Austin 15years. Hello?

I don’t know where to begin. I don’t think anyone would doubt that Angle could take Austin and Michaels in a shoot, especially those two guys. But why bring it up on Twitter? Why attack two guys that you probably made more money with than anyone in the business? Why attack two guys who gave you some of your greatest matches of your career? Why attack two guys have done nothing but said complimentary things about you?

I have not touched a pill 8 yrs. up urs
@JRsBBQ @IAmJericho How do You feel about that. I’m the Best today! If Wwe never wants Me, their Mistake. What then?

A fan then tweeted to Kurt that he should go back to the WWE in which he responded, “I wish. Sting will stay in tna

I actually felt a little sorry for Kurt after reading the tweet he sent to Chris Jericho and Jim Ross. Here is a guy that desperately misses the attention and fame he received when he was a WWE superstar. Angle was a free agent not too long ago and could have been signed by the WWE. All reports indicate that they never showed any serious interest. At some point the guy just has to let it go.

Now I am always hesitant about copying and pasting tweets that have been deleted, however Kurt Angle has since tweeted an apology which you can read on his feed.

I Do Want to Apologize to Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin for My Comment.Without them I Would Have never had my Opportunity in Pro Wrestling” – @RealKurtAngle

He also justified his rant as just having fun.

I don’t get twitter.I Love tweeting What I feel-or responding to idiots. But I’m Supposed to be”Politically Correct” w/ My tweets?Forget It” – @RealKurtAngle

And if I can’t give You All Personality, I don’t want to tweet Anymore. Give Me an RT if You Agree! And an Amen!” – @RealKurtAngle

Someone get that crazy uncle of ours off the Internet!
